A friend at Bible Study pointed out to us that "wait" in the passage we were studying, didn't mean to be resigned and passive; it meant to watch intently for your opportunity and be ready to POUNCE LIKE A CAT!
I thought about waiting for Daddy to come home when I was young. I would ride my bike around the corner and wait for him to come into view as he was driving home from work - almost always exactly 6:15. Then I would pedal as hard as I could back up the hill, round the corner, and try to beat him into the driveway. I knew I could count on a big smile, and that he would be excited to hear about my day, before we went in for supper.
So, next time I read "wait on the Lord", I will know that God delights in being "ambushed" by his children.
My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. Psalm 62:5
